    It really is a great looking knife, the handle is better in person. Fit and finish on this thing is literally flawless.

    Just curious, why are you deciding to sell it?

    "Experience" is what you get when you don't get what you want.

    Yes Rader calls these "semi-customs". This one is part of the first batch of 5 so all the work was done in house on this knife.

    That's correct. All the work was done in-shop on these first five. My plan is to eventually turn this line into a mid-tech by having the profiles water-jet cut and commercially heat-treated. And this handle design is only one of five, as I have changed it to an easier to make version. That angled groove was very difficult to get evenly centered in the handle, so for those reasons, this knife really underpriced as it is, so be sure to snatch it up.

    Thanks for clarifying Michael, I am shocked that it is still available considering how fast they sold out.
